What happened in your sims 3 game today?


  • KarritzKarritz Posts: 21,880 Member
    I'm turning off the PC now after a day in which I almost go the video completed. It should be ready to load tomorrow. I just can't sit here any longer today.

    Happy Simming all.
  • KarritzKarritz Posts: 21,880 Member
    @bekkasan yes - she does look fantastic to be the mother of 15 young adults. That's the magic of sims. She's still a young adult herself. :o Now that would be difficult to replicate in real life. :D

    they all look amazing.


    Yup, those mods are a lifesaver :)

    Langerak Family, Day 211

    Ariana was one of the first people to get up to eat breakfast.

    Afterwards, she took care of Rose while her parents ate.

    Daisy used the fish that the family had caught the other day to fertilize the garden. Still waiting on one last watermelon plant to go bad, then she will start to plant one or two of each type of plant the game offers. There will be no more money trees other than the ones that are there currently.

    Rain was still at the house from the previous night, and apparently she got sick on something because she went to the bathroom... it couldn't be anything else, right?

    Lily loves playing with the toys that her mother, grandmother, and the generations before played with.

    Dwight has been getting a lot of MA wishes, so I let him do them for the points.

    Ariana chatted with Rain, who got a more modernish look than the fairy look she had. Rain comforted her on the loss of Quinton, and Ariana apologized for being mad that Rain and Dwight were hooking up.

    Daisy wanted to spar with someone, so Dwight happily obliged. Daisy got the next belt too.

    Then, she spent a bit of quality time with her eldest daughter.

    Only played the one day last night so I could play a different save. I didn't have near as much fun as I thought, so I decided I'll abandon it and just play more of the Langerak's tonight. I'm still planning on coming up with something fun near the 4500 page but we still have over 190 pages yet so I've got time.

    @Karritz Wow, Gerri is doing good raising 15 children.
    Evil Sims can be pretty fun.
    Klaus isn't going to complain about romancing and potentially woohooing Gerri, is he?
    Great update!

    @ZhakiraP Nice family pics!

    @GraceyManor Looks like a nice honeymoon location.
    Great update!

    @KevinL5275 Sorry to for the loss of your cat.

    @bekkasan Yep, definitely sleazy.
    Must be doing something to get all that loot, anyway.
    Yeah, he went in his Spooky Day costume, lol
    Regan is beautiful.

    Hey friends. :) Just realized I am 4 pages behind... :grimace: Not sure how that happened. Life happened I guess. It was a nice 3 day weekend for us.

    @Brandontaylor Darn burglars...I saw a mod once that eliminates them and I was tempted to add it to my game... Go Ariana for doing what the cop couldn't do. :neutral:
    Hellloooo Dwight jogging. :love:
    Yay for Harlan and Daisy's new baby Lily! <3 (Guess that dispels the myth that if a male harvests you get a male baby and vice versa.) So she'll be a half and half. That's how I'd play it too.
    Thanks for all the sweet reply comments. <3
    Oh everything definitely IS getting a reboot these days. And yeah sometimes it's not always a bad thing, but...I get the feeling they are trying to 'modernize' these classics in a not so good way...you know what I mean. :( I just feel like there's an agenda to erase history because it was so "offensive" and no, we need to know how it was in the past, so we don't repeat it. Ok, I'm off my soapbox now. Sorry. :p
    Thanks for the comments on my story post. <3
    That isn't good if Emily's voice is starting to irritate him. I hope it's just because of his depression and not anything else.
    ^Yeah it was just due to his depression making him feel frustrated. No worries. ;)
    Yeah, maybe they should eat first. Then they got to wait one hour... oh wait, that's just for the pool. :wink:
    ^HA HA! :joy:
    Heeeey I recognize that Greg Olson picture of Jesus coming out of the tomb in that "Help me" lyric video. :blush: He's a Mormon artist, one of the best, that's why I'm familiar with them. :blush:
    Aww, Lily is an adorable toddler! <3 And watching Dwight play with her was SO sexy! :love: (Sorry. :lol: )
    Congrats on the arrival of Rose. :blush: (I agree with ZhakiraP that her uprooting looks like something from Harry Potter. :p )
    Ooooh, Dwight getting some action here. :smirk: Oh my goodness I am loving the drama afterward! :smiley:
    RIP Quinton...
    Oh boy...I think Rain is pregnant. How is this gonna go down with the others? :grimace:

    @Nikkei_Simmer There are still 3 homeless sims waiting for your promised makeover. ;):p:blush: (They called and have appointed me as their advocate! :lol: )

    @Emily4331 You're welcome. <3
    The whole town is here...and they all hate your baby. :lol:
    ^ LOL!
    You know, for Sims 3 being rated T they sure threw in some Mature elements didn't they... (Ho'oker and Ha'rlot as last names, c'mon. :confused: )
    Sooo this part is kind of irrelevant now. Calista became pregnant via Jake, so I had Jake ask his other romantic interest to just be friends. Which kind of made me sad because I had him stick around and talk to her for a bit and she's like family oriented and was so sweet :bawling:
    ^Aww, that is really sad. :cry:
    Sorry messing with mods messed up the pregnancy. :(
    Guess I know why to never play in Los Aniegos. :lol:
    I'm wondering if I should finally update my graphics drivers. Just scared it will make my sims and objects look more pixelated than they already do because of Windows 10... *sigh* For some reason body hair looks splotchy on my sims in LIVE mode now like it did on my old Windows 7...instead of fine hair like it did when I first got this Windows 10 computer. :( I dunno what's going on... Any insight you have is appreciated. <3
    Anyhoo, I checked out your blog again. Great job on the new conversions! :star: I wanna try one of the outfits on one of my sims. ;) (Regarding custom thumbnails, I was gonna say you don't su'ck because you did it with the nails you converted from S4. :star: )

    @Karritz Your home deserved to be showcased. :star: I'm glad it was a very nice surprise for you. :blush:
    Enjoyed reading your other posts. :)

    @Turjan Enjoyed your posts. :lol:
    Needless to say that I enjoyed the update and am of course very opinionated :lol: .
    ^I like hearing your opinions. :blush:
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on my recent story post. :kissing_heart: I like that I got a chuckle out of you with Elliott's "I don't want to join your band" antics. :lol::blush:
    That's A LOT of beds all on one lot! :p
    I know it's just a game, but at this time, I was shouting some rather unprintable words at the screen.
    ^You know, in that case, I would be too! :angry: That's ridiculous what was going on...
    I don't have any pics, but the conversation between Hannah and Tyler was a complete disaster. She was full on "Diva" mode that day, and she certainly wasn't in the mood for romance. Which left both of them somewhat lost for words.
    ^Aww, Bummer. :( It's a hard knock life right now for Tyler...

    @bekkasan Thank you for all those sweet reply comments to me. <3 You're so brave to cut your own hair. :) I'd butcher mine, I always have to get it professionally done. Right now I'm afraid of cutting mine because with the way my hair is thinning I'm thinking I should keep all the hair I got left... *Sigh* I may be looking into seeing a hormone specialist finally. It's been long overdue since we never lived close enough to one. But we do now.
    I didn't think you used dog poses so I'm glad to know that was pure Audie in that photo. :blush:
    I love how Orion turned out. I took some time and some cc to get him exactly like I pictured him. :love:
    ^It paid off. :love: His horn was glowing so brilliantly! Is that cc? Because I don't usually see the horns glowing that brightly. :)
    Oooohhh Jeff and Linda are your testing sims. Gotcha. Yes, they deserve a beautiful life in SI after all that. ;)
    Makes sense that witches would benefit from having a cat. Maybe I should have Abigail find one. :grin::grey_question:
    Nice to meet Logan and his daughter Talia. :) Is that Coco's Logan?
    Andy McHandy. Love it! :mrgreen:
    Pretty picture of the sims enjoying the nice day at the Overlook. :)
    Reagan is a very pretty sim and the denim top suits her. :star: Since you tested it I know it's safe for my game (well...it should be. :p We'll see.)

    @ZhakiraP Very nice family photos of the families from Moonlight Falls. :)
    Oh you're an Office fan too? Great show. :mrgreen:

    @GraceyManor Holy beautiful - and I must say sexy :smirk: - wedding dress! It doesn't leave much to the imagination does it? :p Is that one you found on TSR? I think I ran across it once. :lol: What a lovely wedding and I enjoyed the songs. <3
    Man, I wish my hubby had been so rich at the time we married that he could purchase a vacation home as our wedding gift. :mrgreen: I think we would have one in the Philippines to be honest. <3 🌴

    @Sprottenham I like the way you set up the Police Briefing room. Nice job. :star:

    @MamaSimTee We got snow here! :smiley: Of course it all melted the next morning, but I was happy. :lol: How much did y'all get?

    @Silverofdreams30 Enjoyed the pictures from your vanilla gameplay. :) Like I said, I can never go vanilla. :lol: Love my cc too much. :p

    Been playing my game a bit lately and preparing more photos for my story. It's been fun. :blush: I can't wait to share more with y'all.

    Keep calm and sim on my friends. :) Stay healthy. <3

    @KevinL5275 I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my baby girl, Daisy, in November from cancer. It's never easy and words seldom ever really help. Just try to think of those 13 years of memories he left you with. It may not always feel like it, but I think remembering is the best tool to soothe grief. :heart:
  • BrandontaylorBrandontaylor Posts: 4,745 Member
    @emorrill I never really thought about it, but Dwight has the lucky trait. It is supposed to cause less burglars if someone has it, so it may be why I hardly had any until now.
    He's gotta run with no shirt on, lol. Even in winter.
    Yeah, and then that way, when they have children, I can cure them and just say they are only 1/4 PlantSim. I probably will try and keep a few characteristics in the 1/4 PlantSims, just for the randomness.
    You're welcome.
    Yeah, I think you are right there. I hate that they took shows like Dukes of Hazzard off the air just because of their car, and I also get it about trying to modernize shows.
    I figured as much.
    I'll have to go back and watch it again, as I probably missed it. Oh, and I never mentioned it before, but my cousin's mother (used to be my aunt until she and my uncle divorced) is Mormon. She's close to Carthage, IL which I knew had a bit of Mormon history.
    She is adorable, and I think she'll be a pretty adult too.
    Lily's "birth" looks a lot like the Mandrake scene when Harry and friends were in Herbology class.
    I had to throw something in there to change things up a bit, lol. And yeah, I was hinting around that Rain is actually pregnant. It's going to be interesting, especially for me. I've got to figure out exactly how I want to play this.
  • GraceyManorGraceyManor Posts: 20,077 Member
    You are very welcome =) I knew I had it somewhere.
    And top suits your sim nicely, its one of my fav tops now.^_^

    lol, I wish I could get a vacation home as a wedding gift to lol.
    I think Ireland would be nice for me.Yup, I found it on TSR, I remember
    you mentioned a while back to download from Featured Artist on there,
    and that's what I did, found a boat load of stuff.

    Thanks! They are having a great time on their honeymoon.^_^

    Hello All.

    I just turned my computer on and noticed someone had commented on my tutorial video on how to build a dive lot. I clicked on the notification and the first thing I noticed was an ad was running on it. That's the first time I've seen an advertisement on one of my YouTube videos. I get nothing out of it as I'm not monetised but a few months ago YouTube decided they could and would select videos of people who are not monetised and run ads on them. YouTube gets all of the benefit from those ads. I didn't even know they had put ads on that video.
  • SprottenhamSprottenham Posts: 1,106 Member
    @Turjan Haha, yeah, thanks, the prison warden is still around as well as the prison that I built a long time ago simply because "today I want to build a prison", so finally I should get a use for it. :P

    Tyler's colleague Tyler, oh wow, haha. :P

    Oh my, it does seem really hard for Tyler (not his colleague Tyler!) to excel in his career.. oh, I can understand the profanity towards the screen, it has happened to me too when something repeatedly doesn't go the way I want. :P

    Hopefully making friends with the boss works!

    @bekkasan Thanks, yup now it should be all over.. for them. :P

    @Brandontaylor Thanks for the kind comment!

    Haha, oh plantsims sounds practical! I guess they only need to drink water and have some fertilizer? :P

    Oh, what a stylish old man Quinton is!

    Nice costume party, I have always liked those tiger suits. :P

    And then Quinton passed away. :(

    Yeah.. why do female sims sometimes get sick, hmm, I don't know. ;)

    I like the picture of Daisy in her sparring costume in front of the doll house.

    @emorill Oh, thanks for the comment about the police briefing room. Hehe, I actually built a replica of the Sunset Valley police station, however a little quick and dirty with mostly empty insides, apart from the briefing room. :P

  • BrandontaylorBrandontaylor Posts: 4,745 Member
    I just realized that Ariana is exactly a genetic clone of her father, Dwight. His female version would look just like her. This means that Daisy is as well since PlantSims resemble who picks them.

    Chapter 16.6 – Sprottenham October 2022 – part II: Aftershock.


    In the Jiggens/Flansbarne household the parents woke up on this rainy october morning to Iselin screaming in her crib.. Agathi was a little flabbergasted as she muttered still halfway asleep "You'll take this one, Baturney..."


    He gave Iselin food in the baby chair, before making breakfast to himself in the kitchen. Agathi simply went back to sleep...


    She woke up a little later, and was in need of a bath, but so was Baturney, so she spent some time teaching Ruben to talk while waiting. Baturney was dead tired still, so he returned to bed to get some sleep.


    Agathi put on her workwear and sat down to eat a late breakfast while watching the news channel.



    News reporter: ".... outside this abandonded peat factory on the outskirts of the small coastal town of Sprottenham, where an international human trafficking and smugglers league was just raided and shut down tonight and.."


    This was very exciting news to Agathi the crime novelist! An international league of criminals, here, in her otherwise dull and peaceful hometown! Almost right at her doorstep! Unbelievable! She had to see this for herself!


    She quickly scurried out the door and went for a taxi up to the old peat factory, this was so thrilling! She had to go there, observe and take notes, of course, hoping to find something that would give her inspiration for future novels!


    "Wow, this really happened! There are police cars here, and the area is closed off! Well, if I just sneak under this band here, I am sure nobody will notice..."


    "Oh, this is so exhilarating! I am walking right here, on the scene where some real crime and a police raid just happened!" Agathi was having a field day with this! She walked around the corner of the building, and stumbled across CSI Øystein Juell.

    Continues in spoiler:

    Øystein: Ma'am, this area is closed to the public, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

    Agathi: Oh, what for? I'm just here on a morning stroll, you know, I find old buildings like this immensely fascinating.. I am also a writer and....
    Øystein: I understand, ma'am, but this is a crime scene.. I'm afraid you're going to have to leave.
    Agathi: Oh, ok, I will uh.. leave shortly... just let me take a peak..


    Øystein: No, you can't do that! You have to leave!
    Agathi: Ok, ok, I'll leave...

    Øysten walked on in his direction, and of course, Agathi.. she didn't leave, she continued on her way, snooping around at the old factory..


    She stopped by this window to take a peak inside, hoping to observe the investigators in action, when a police officer had spotted her and came running...


    Police officer Anders Saleh: Ma'am! Ma'am! You can't stand there! This is area is closed off to the public!


    Agathi: Oh, I am sorry officer, I am just so fascinated by these old buildings...

    Anders: Ma'am! With all due respect, this is a serious crime scene not an amusement park! You should be happy I'm not arresting you for trespassing! You have to leave the area or I will take you to the station!

    Agathi: Alright, alright I'll get out of here...


    Anders: I'll escort you out to make sure you do!


    Even though she just almost got herself arrested, Agathi still found this to be a very stimulating experience! To bad she had to go to work at the community theatre again, because right now she could have almost killed someone to have the opportunity to go home and write! Well, almost!


    While Agathi went to work, Baturney was still sleeping and Ruben and Iselin were playing with their toys.



    Well, I did say that things would return to normal after all the recent events, but for some people a major earthquake just happened, shockwaves and all.. and there will probably still be aftershocks and ripples that spread out for years to come...


    In the Gudmestad-Kiinsmo household Sandra woke up to young Mark crying, and was getting a little worried when her husband Robert hadn't returned this night like he used to.


    She tried to call him on the phone this morning, and when nobody answered her anxiety levels increased even further. It all got even worse when she turned on the tv to watch the news that morning..






    In the Sævik household, oldest daughter Edny, was eating an early breakfast, as she had been woken up by her younger brother Kolbjørn calling for mommy to change his diaper, but mommy was at the police station...




    Father Vetle woke up alone this morning. He was used to his wife, Oda, getting home late, but usually she would be there next to him in bed by the time he woke up...


    He felt something was off, but didn't have to much time to think about it yet, because in addition to his oldest daughter, he had two young boys to take care off. First little baby Gøran needed feeding and socializing, before it was Kolbjørns turn..


    Edny was watching the action channel alone this morning. Someone was missing in the couch...

    Vetle had sat down on the couch to watch tv with his daughter, when he got a phone call...


    Vetle:Sævik, hello.

    Phone voice: Vetle Sævik? Hello, this is officer Lamshey Trazlacat, Sprottenham police.. I am calling you in regards to your wife, Oda Sævik..


    Vetle: Hello? Yes, my wife? Where is she? Has something happened? Is she ok?

    Lamshey: Your wife is doing fine, given the circumstances... she's at the police station, in our custody..


    Vetle: Why!? What happened!?

    Lamshey: Your wife, there is no way to say this with ease... she is under arrest being charged for kidnapping, human trafficking, smuggling, trade and possession of illegal goods...

    Vetle: Oh god... oh god.. we have.. oh no.. oh no... oh no...

    Lamshey: You didn't know about your wifes partaking in these operations, sir?


    Vetle: No, I... I.. I didn't... I didn't know it was this.. Can I come see her?

    Lamshey: I am sorry, I cannot grant your request at this moment...


    Lamshey: Listen, I have a number you can call if you should need someone to talk to...

    Vetle: Ok... ok.. I.. I really need to see my wife, I really need to..

    Lamshey: We will keep in touch and let you know when you can come see her, is that alright?


    Vetle: Alright, I guess.. I guess so..

    Lamshey: Like I said, I have a few numbers you can call.. I suggest you get an attorney for you and your wife.. I'm afraid this is.. this is very serious..


    Vetle: Am I going to be charged with something?

    Lamshey: No, not as it looks right now.. I suggest you talk to someone, and we will be in touch.

    Vetle: Ok, ok.. I will do that..

    Lamshey: We will keep you informed about your wife. Take care, Vetle, and we'll be in touch. Ok, bye.

    Vetle: Bye....


    Edny: What's happening? Who was that on the phone? Where's mommy?

    Vetle: Mommy, she is... she's at the police station..


    Edny: The police station? Why is she there? Did she get arrested!?

    Vetle: Well, yes.. mommy she has been... she has been doing some really ...some really bad things..


    Edny: I don't care, she's my mommy, I want to see her! When will she come back home?

    Vetle: I don't know sweetie, I don't know.. I think mommy will... mommy will be gone for a long time now...


    Meanwhile, all of the victims had now left the hotel and found their new homes...


    Danica Tomren had moved into this house at Crewe Street 1 just opposite of Harbor Park together with Elisa Meek.


    Reading a book in peace and quite in your own kitchen, without having to slave all day for someone else, isn't it nice?


    The other kids, George Alnuman, Ingolf Dybdal and Even Foss had moved into the North Sunderland private orphanage run by the couple Fred and Wanda Westgård on the outskirts of town (just above the North Sunderland beach) where they so far appeared to live happy days.


    The couple outside after kissing in the rain.


    Ingolf and Even were running outside to play in the treehouse.


    George was in one of the kids rooms playing on the computer.


    Ada Dalhaug had moved into Mitchell 12 and was currently on the lookout for someone that would hire her.

    Adas new home.

    Eilif Sagstad had moved into Mitchell 11 just opposite of Ada, and was also currently unemployed.

    Eilifs new home.

    Wendy Strandheim had moved into Dunstan View 9, just opposite of the school, and was currently looking for a job.

    Wendys new home. The government/town council had granted them all a bit of cash and cheap loans to buy homes for themselves.


    In the Jiggens/Flansbarne household Baturney eventually woke up to give Iselin some food before his wife got home. Ruben had gotten tired and was already in bed.


    Agathi made sure to also put Iselin in her crib, before it was time for the adults to do some house chores.


    After they had cleaned the bathroom Agathi was having some brilliantly evil ideas after the visit to the peat factory earlier, and finally she had some time to sit down to write and get them all out of the system..


    My sims know what's going on! ;)


    Later that night Wendy Strandheim was seen shaking it off and enjoying her new found freedom on the dance floor at The Elegant Flame, before she quickly changed into a fire fighting uniform, so she is no longer unemployed.


    After writing for a while, Agathi eventually got tired and went to bed, though Baturney was still up playing with the doll house, after having slept pretty much all day...


    Anyway, I think with this, it is time to say good night to our friends here, for now. ;)

    I’m gonna let Dwight age up instead of keeping him immortal. He’ll do it naturally so he might be around at least 40 more Sim days but I had him move out on his own. When Ariana dies, then it’ll only be Goths in the household but I had my reasons for doing this.

    @bekkasan thank you. Mary looks great!

    @Silverofdreams30 Thank you, I barely play the game sometimes, too busy doing birthday makeovers and taking family pictures :D

    @Brandontaylor thank you! So, Daisy and Harlan have 2 children by now ? How does it work with plantsims? Does a forbidden fruit appear in her inventory after woohoo? :p

    @emorrill Huge office fan. Dwight is my favorite. He´s just the right kind of loony.

    I'll have a look. There is an option to stop people using your videos in their videos.

    Unfortunately at this point even playing my game (or doing anything on my computer is a technical impossibility.

    Life in Aurora Skies - Pt.1
    Narrated by Donny Lorde and Lisa Dawnlight

    Donny: I just inherited a house in Aurora Skies from my late Aunt who just passed away a few months ago, so Lisa and I had packed up our belongings and left the city life of Bridgeport as we were getting tired of the hustle and bustle of city life as well as the creatures that roam the streets at night looking for their next victim. Bridgeport had became too overrun with vampires which made it very unsafe to go out at night, so we tried to do our shopping and any fun activities that we wanted to do during the daylight hours. And yes, there was a vampire or 2 out during the daytime due to them drinking vampiric sunscreen that they either got from a local alchemist, witches or that they made themselves so that they could move about during the day to do their business but luckily enough they didn't bother the people that was out and about doing whatever they needed to do unless of course you had a rogue vampire who didn't care about the vampire laws that was put in place to protect the citizens of Bridgeport. And if one did break the vampire laws, then they were punished by either being thrown out of the city forever or destroyed depending on the crime that they committed. But word got around the town that the exiled vampires were banding together and making plans to storm Bridgeport to oust out the vampire leaders and their loyal followers and get rid of the vampire laws. So our move came at a perfect time so that we wouldn't be caught up in the rogue vampire takeover and possibly become food for the vamps if the rumors were true about the takeover.

    So this is the house that my Aunt left me in her will. It's located at 29 Foss View Road. It has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room and a kitchen and a big backyard. She was a homemaker and wife until her husband passed away a few years before her. She loved canning food and baking at every chance that she got, that is until she took sick and passed away. I had no idea that the house was left to me until her lawyer called and had set up a meeting about her will. He handed over the deed to the house and papers for me to sign and telling us that we can move in whenever we wanted to and that the was already furnished. Of course Lisa and I will be upgrading the furniture as well as adding onto the house, we're just not going to do that all right now because we want to get settled in and go to college to try to get some degrees as I want to go into the military. Yes I know that one doesn't need a degree to go into the military but it helps as you can start at a higher level depending on your final grade as well as having a high pay than someone who doesn't have a degree. And for Lisa, she wants to get in the medical career.

    Donny: Even though I have been to the house in the past, Lisa has never been here when I used to visit my aunt, so this is the first time that she's been here.

    Lisa: Yes, he's right that I have never been here but I have seen pictures of the outside of it when Donny was little and playing around the backyard which we had fenced in after moving in so that one of these days, I might add a garden to our yard or a swimming pool but right now we need to worry about how we are going to maintain the household. Granted that Donny also inherited his Aunt's money which was over 250,000 simoleons but if we don't get jobs or something to earn more money, we're be poor if we were to start redesigning the house to add a 2nd floor and to expend the kitchen to make it bigger than what it is and to do whatever else that we want to do to the house.

    So we go inside of the house so that Donny can show me around and such which didn't take long to do since it's small on the inside of the house but hopefully I will get used to it soon enough. Donny tried to tell me that he used to believe that the house used to be haunted when he was a little boy and I told him that he was just imagining things as he used to read those scary comic books as a boy.

    Donny: But the house was haunted when I used to come over here as a little boy. The ghost was of a small boy that became my friend when I was little but was gone when I grew up.
    Lisa rolling her eyes at Donny: Yeah sure Donny. That was just your overactive imagination that you used to have as a little boy.
    Donny: Hush Lisa, I know what I saw as a kid and you can't tell me any differently.

    Lisa: Yeah, yeah , ye....

    Donny: Okay now that I shut you up about the ghost, let's talk about something else.
    Lisa: Okay if you insist. What do you want to talk about?
    Donny: Have I told you lately that I love you and that you look hot?
    Lisa: Yes, everyday. But you can tell me again as I feel the same way about you.

    Donny: Hey about we have a pillow fight since we don't have to worry about the neighbors knocking on the walls or the floors if we get a little to rough and loud?
    Lisa: Sure, why not. This will be fun.
    Donny: Boy this is fun but I just wish that there was more room in the living room so that we're not too close to the window.

    It seems that the household as a visitor dressed as a llama mascot for the university that's located a couple of hours away but they're not too worried about greeting him.

    Donny & Lisa: Someone is at the door.
    Donny: Just don't worry about it and hopefully they will go away.

    Lisa getting mad: HEY! You just hit me in my nose and now it hurts.
    Donny: I'm sorry. I don't mean to hit you there.
    Lisa: Whatever!
    Donny: I said that I was sorry. Isn't that enough?
    Lisa: I need to teach you a thing or 2 about pillow fighting like where you can hit at and not to hit at.

    Donny: Oh come Lisa, lighten up some! I know what will make you laugh and make you feel better.
    Lisa: And just what will make me laugh and feel better?
    Donny: This.

    Lisa: That's just too funny. Here's my funny face to you.
    Donny: See now, didn't I tell you that I could make you laugh?
    Lisa: Yes!

    Lisa: Be prepared for my incoming kiss.
    Donny: WOAH there. I'm not ready for that kiss.
    Lisa: WHAT do you mean that you weren't ready for that kiss? What's with the attitude now? Weren't you the one that was just trying to make me laugh and feel better after getting hit in the nose by your pillow?
    Donny: Just what I said that I wasn't ready for that kiss just yet. And no, I don't have an attitude, I think it's you that has the attitude now. And yes, I was the one that was trying to get a laugh and smile out of you, so you better drop that attitude of yours or I won't give you a kiss later.

    Lisa: Now it's my turn to try and get you to laugh and smile again.
    Donny: You wanna bet that you can't?
    Lisa: You're on.

    Lisa: Did that help you get a laugh and smile out of you?
    Donny grabbing Lisa's hands: You bet it did babe.
    Lisa: Good because I hate staying mad at you and you at me.
    Donny: Same here.

    @Brandontaylor Thanks for the reply comments. <3 (I felt a little special there to have a single post from you all for me. :blush: )
    Oh, and I never mentioned it before, but my cousin's mother (used to be my aunt until she and my uncle divorced) is Mormon. She's close to Carthage, IL which I knew had a bit of Mormon history.
    ^Indeed. :star: It's the place where the founder of our church (and first prophet) Joseph Smith was martyred. At the jail there. It still stands today and they do tours through it.
    We went and visited there when I was 15 or 16(?). I remember checking out the grounds outside of the jail after the tour and looking over at my mom staring up at the window that Joseph fell out of (after he was shot by the mob that burst into the jail) and holding her hand to her chest and getting choked up. It's never easy to see my mom cry and it was another moment where I could see and feel the depth of love she carried for that man, our religion, and the legacy he left behind that so greatly blessed our lives. <3 Anyway. ;)
    Nauvoo is a beautiful place. It was so lovely we had a hard time leaving it. If you haven't visited...you should. <3 It's like stepping back in time...
    Lily's "birth" looks a lot like the Mandrake scene when Harry and friends were in Herbology class.
    Yes! The Mandrakes! That's right! I just couldn't remember...

    Yup, I found it on TSR, I remember
    you mentioned a while back to download from Featured Artist on there, and that's what I did, found a boat load of stuff.
    You gave me warm fuzzies saying that. :blush:;) Thanks! I'm glad you found lots of nice stuff to add to your game. :star:
    Do you remember which creator it was who made the wedding dress? If not, I can poke around on there. No biggie. :)

    @Karritz YouTube is getting corrupt imho. I miss the glory days of it. And their monetizing is awful now! I feel really bad for those who have made a living on it for years and now they aren't as much so they have to have sponsors - and advertise their stuff - to keep their channels afloat.

    @Sprottenham You're welcome. :)

    @ZhakiraP Dwight bugged me sometimes, but he had some funny moments. :lol: I'm totally a Jim and Pam fan. :blush:

    @Silverofdreams30 Finally made comments on your story post. :kissing_heart:

    @Nikkei_Simmer Oh...right. I forgot about that. :grimace:
    Apologizes my friend. Such a bummer! :confounded: Hope you can get it fixed, or get a new one, soon. :kissing_heart:

    Think I may rotate between the main household and Dwight’s. Aging will be shut off when playing Dwight and the others will be in a caste to restrict just about everything they do. I also got a mod that enhances PlantSims so Daisy actually has a few abilities now.

    @emorrill - I’m going with the “get a job” first, then I’ll see about replacing the computer. 😁. So it might take a while. Yet another HDD to convert to an external. I think I’m getting a 4TB SSD drive this time for internal. And this time it’s gonna be a gaming laptop (then a save up for desktop gaming PC) when we get settled for good.
    Always "River McIrish" ...and maybe some Bebe Hart. ~innocent expression~

    @KevinL5275 I'm so sorry to read about your cat Monkey. I lost my girl Shadow in October for the same reason. I think it's not fair that our beloved furry friends don't get to live as long we do sometimes. *hugs*
